Lukas,

I mean that the host must get installed the same virtualbox version (
http://www.freshports.org/emulators/virtualbox-ose/) than the virtualbox
addition tools inside the VM (
http://www.freshports.org/emulators/virtualbox-ose-additions/).
You can check the version of Virtualbox installed using this command:
% pkg_info | grep virtualbox

Kind regards,
Alexandre
